Pick of the Week:
Given how strong the past few weeks are this is a bit of a soft week, but there are still some good movies coming out. Happy Death Day comes from Blumhouse who have produced some great horror films lately and always know how to make money. I never had any real interest in seeing The Mountain Between Us, I like both of the actors in it but a romantic survival movie doesn’t really appeal to me. Who knows it might be good. The Foreigner looks like Taken meets Patriot Games with Jackie Chan and it looks awesome.
The Foreigner is my Pick of the Week
